Remember those old vintage halloween costumes we got to wear when we were kids?
You know, the masks that were made of old heavy paper or cardboard that had holes punched out for your eyes and little holes at the nostrils so you could breathe. Yea right! The holes never seemed to line up with your own eyes. You would always be peeking out of one hole cuz the other one was like, lined up at your ear! And lets not forget about those nostril holes..... not to mention those little slits at the mouth, whutz up with that? You just kept trying to stick your tongue thru it! Then those lovely rubberbands stapled to the mask so you could keep it on? Mine would always snap before the end of the night! awwww the good ole days........ although I suppose some of you are to young to remember those "olden days" (as my kids call it)....hahaha
Well, that was my inspiration for my lastest bear I just finished up in the studio. I gave him a really cool vintage halloween cardboard mask, even has the rubberband to keep it on! I made my version of a vintage candy container so he could sit inside or use it to collect his candy while trick or treating!
